I have a shipping buddy and we literally just ship each other the same item back and forth or the same type of item that is free--rocks I know this is silly, but we're in it for the moohlah I also ship canned food to different places too but when I'm in need of a shop being done quickly, I can grab one of our go to 1.2-1.5lb rocks and put in a box to send to her.
I wondered about the canned goods if the post office considers them liquid or not. My boyfriend lives in another city so I will ship boxes to him (really myself!) and put bags of beans, rice, cake/brownie/cookie mixes, or anything else that looks good. The bags of beans and rice are good as they are usually one pound apiece. So no weighing needed as I will stuff with wadded up newspaper to fill it up the rest of the way. If I shop the post office in his city, I will then send a box back to myself at my house. He thinks it is funny to get a package in the mail insured and sent priority with only a bag of beans.
Shopping across Indiana but mostly around Indianapolis.
Thanks for all the replies!
I'm aware that people just stuff the boxes for weight. Personally, I've only used the box shops when I actually needed them (and am so grateful for them because let me tell you- they come in handy!).
I just thought it might be fun/beneficial to actually get stuff I want. Kinda like a pen pal- but packages
So, I wasn't really interested in doing the whole "random stuff in a box" thing. Who knows...I may cave. But, until then...I'll keep trying to find my match!
